BC Hydro removing infrastructure

The 25 Cycle Building and some abandoned penstock infrastructure will be removed as part of BC Hydro’s Puntledge Building Retirement project.

BC Hydro has informed the Comox Valley Regional District that the 25 Cycle Building and some abandoned penstock infrastructure will be removed as part of the Puntledge Old Penstock and 25 Cycle Building Retirement project. The project is scheduled to occur between April and October 2017. Work to be included under this project includes the deconstruction of the 25 Cycle Building and removal of some remaining elements of the old penstock corridor. BC Hydro has initiated a project at a cost of about 8.5 million.

CVRD moving forward with proposed regional organics composting facility

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) expects a report to go before the Board regarding next steps for the proposed regional organics composting facility April 20. Currently there are two possible locations. However, the CVRD and the Comox Stratchona Waste Management (CSWM) did submit a grant application in conjunction with the City of Campbell River in September of last year, proposing the facility be housed at the Norm Wood Environmental Centre. CSWM has been awarded $5.5 million in funding based on that application through the Small Communities Fund for a regional organics composting facility to service the entire CSWM service area.

Crown Isle Homes submits development application for four-plex

Crown Isle Homes has submitted a development permit application to construct a four-plex on Lot 28 bordering the traffic circle in The Rise, Phase 2. Once the application has been approved, a building permit application will be submitted. Contact Jason Andrews for more information.
